NCCM Releases Elections Policy Guide for Canadian Muslims
The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) has released an Federal Elections Policy Guide, calling on all parties to adopt recommendations on domestic and foreign policies related to Islamophobia, hate, and discrimination.
The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization and is a leading voice for Muslim civic engagement and the promotion of human rights.
The Federal Elections Policy Guide highlights 35 key domestic areas of focus federally and 12 recommendations on foreign policy, including calls for a Special Envoy on Islamophobia, a national support fund for survivors of hate-motivated crimes, review of systemic discrimination in national security agencies, addressing Bill 21, and standing against the violation of Palestinian human rights, among several other recommendations.
“Hold your politicians accountable this election by asking them what they plan to do to tackle Islamophobia in all of its forms,” advised NCCM.
